Thank you Paddington Cat Clinic

Well we are nearly over with the move, the movers are finished and that container is on the train on the way to Canberra, the house is clean and apart from a few mishaps with tape not sticking and the hot water heater breaking on the last day, things are going smoothly

Whilst Tony and I have been frantic with the move Alvin has had his feet up at the cattery at Paddington Cat Clinic.

Over the last 12 months, Alvin has spent many a weekend in the good hands of the Paddington Cat Clinic where the cuddles are included in the price. Thanks to everyone for taking such good care of my little man the piece of mind is priceless. Hopefully he is just a comfortable in his holiday house in Canberra.

World Animal Day 4th October 2009

World Animal day is intended as a day of celebration for anyone in the world who cares about animals and among other things to acknowledge and be thankful for the way in which animals enrich our lives. So in celebration here are some of my favourite animals that I have encountered above and below the water in the last couple of years.

Also don't forget that for every cat collar sold through our etsy store PretaPawte are giving $1 to the Cat Protection Society.
